gift or gimmick

by ether   May 17, 2017


it comes like a dream;
if not immediately transcribed,
vanishes to the realm
of twisting coloured lines:
the subconscious.

i never resent loneliness or sorrow
for opening the channel of inspiration.
nothing can compete
with the satisfaction received
upon creative completion;
not even happiness itself.

thus emerges the problem
or solution?

a dynamic question,
dependent on the channel width
and frequency of my breaths.

    I agree with ddavidd about readers understanding this
    write and yes its very deep and there are some ingrained
    thoughts and feelings which the writer has left within these
    lines...take care

    This piece present a great modality . It is hard though for the reader to understand how powerful conceptually and poetically this piece ventures, if he/she is not, like me, familiar with the theme from the beginning. I hope in future you return and make the adjustment in this great work of yours.
